Vegetarian and vegan options are expanding rapidly in Curaçao, even though Caribbean cuisine may not immediately come to mind when you think of vegetarian and vegan dishes. In recent years, more and more vegetarian and vegan restaurants have opened and other operators are offering vegan options on the menu. Here is a selection of the best vegan restaurants, cafes and juice bars on the island.
